  1. There is some distracting miscellaneous car and bike antics too. <;-) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4RQ4wX8CGbM
  2. Anyone know what kind of aircraft this is in the video? They seem to be firing out the side door as they fly around the bad guys... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ED3N0xhFvi0&feature=related
  3. Here is a video of some of them... http://tinyurl.com/9du5kj (and I remember where I was when I first heard this song!)
  4. Hmmm, wonder if there was a \"line\" at the potty in the ramp area?
  5. So what is the story? How come they landed in the pucker brush?
  6. Good overview: http://www.nytimes.com/2008/06/16/opinion/16boot.html

  9. Yes, it was a photo of her. I tried sizes smalled than the 600 by 800 and it still would not go up. Maybe you have to have a certain number of posts before you can put up photos??
  10. She could be my door gunner.
  11. I was in the 36 TAS, just next door in \'67 and part of \'68. Went TDY to Tachi in Feb of \'68 then on to Na Trang until early summer. Came back to Langley, was still standing on the crew door steps when someone hollered, \"Hey, Bob, you have orders to Tachi waiting for you.\" But after I adjusted my DROS from the long TDY to Na Trang they canceled the assignment to Tachi (which had \"A\" models at the time) and later I went to the 346 TAS at CCK until I got out in \'71. I forget the name of the \"anal orifice\" we had for Squadron Commander when I came back from the long TDY. He had been in the service since WWII, a Lt. Col. He moved all enlisted flight crew back on base (cut off sep. rats.) put me in a three man room, one guy worked the flight line days, the other nights, no way to get crew rest. I went and complained to him several times; he and I had words; the last time I was in his office he was screaming at me and told the first Sgt. he wanted my ass if I stepped out of line. To make a long story short, he was rifted from Lt. Col. to A1C and sent to Thailand to finish out his 30 years. I got wind of this and one day when we landed at U-Tapao I ran all the way to Squadron ops where he worked just to laugh at him and it was his day off. I did leave a msg with the people working there to tell him I stopped by to say \"Hi.\" Ha ha. Wish I could have seen his face.
